Let me have a guess: /etc/modprobe.d/options:
options cfg80211 ieee80211_regdom="EU"

I also have this in my modprobe options file to avoid having to unload
all wireless drivers and stack modules, then reload manually. Possibly
some distros auto-set this based on the country selection. Though I
agree that CRDA is way neater.
